MEMORANDUM ADOPTING REPORT AND
RECOMMENDATION OF THE UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
Came on for consideration the report of the United States Magistrate Judge in this action, this
matter having been heretofore referred to the United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 636. On November 4, 2011, the report of the Magistrate Judge was entered containing proposed
findings of fact and recommendations that Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff’s Second
Amended Complaint for Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction Under Rule 12(b)(1) and for Failure
to State a Claim Under Rule 12(b)(6) (Dkt. #40) be granted in part and denied in part.
Having received the report of the United States Magistrate Judge, and no objections thereto
having been timely filed, this Court is of the opinion that the findings and conclusions of the
Magistrate Judge are correct and adopts the Magistrate Judge’s report as the findings and conclusions
of the Court.
It is, therefore, ORDERED that Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff’s Second Amended
Complaint for Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction Under Rule 12(b)(1) and for Failure to State a
Claim Under Rule 12(b)(6) (Dkt. #40) is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part.
